Talking with Angels
First time for Los Angeles … life-changing true story … four young artists encounter Nazis, interfaith meaning, otherworldly beings, remarkable dialogue … This is simply fascinating theater in a one-woman play, Talking With Angels, Budapest, 1943
With Shelley Mitchell
Whether you believe in angels or not, the message in Talking with Angels offers hope and inspiration, especially now, when so much fear and anxiety rules our life through disturbing daily news!
Playing multiple characters, the play begins and ends with Shelley Mitchell portraying an 84 yr.old Holocaust heroine, Gitta Mallasz, the only survivor from a close knit group of young artists who, despite chaos in Nazi occupied Hungary, held weekly meetings where they transcribed channeled messages received from what appeared to be angels!
and with a turn of her head or change in expression, she becomes four distinctly different angelic personalities that bring forth messages of council and comfort. The play covers a mystical and inspired historical period of 17 months when Hungarian Nazi’s were set on destroying Jews and anyone who tried to save them. Sadly, of this group only Gitta Mallasz survived but fortunately, she was able to secretly hide these amazing and uplifting transcripts the group documented which ultimately was brought out of Hungary and turned into a best selling French publication, Talking With Angels (Diamon Press) transcribed by Gitta Mallasz.
Historical note: Mallasz has been recognized (posthumously in 2011) by Israel’s Yad Vashem and awarded the title of RIGHTEOUS AMONG THE NATIONS for help rendered to Jewish persons during the Holocaust at the risk of her own life.
This is a remarkable story.
